  • The campsite El Bahira lies directly at the coast and below the biggest cliff. The first sectors are only a few steps from the campsite area.
  • Excellent connections and cheap flights to Birgi-Trapani or Palermo from all over Europe
  • 500 sport climbing routes and numerous multi-pitch routes up to 400 m
